Parking Proposals

Canterbury City Council are currently consulting on seven proposals which affect Bridge:

Bridge Hill and Bourne Park Road

To introduce double yellow lines opposite the junction to prevent parking in the vicinity of what is now a busy junction.

Coldharbour Lane

To introduce double yellow lines due to HGV parking.

High Street (opposite Union Road)

To extend the existing double yellow lines on the north eastern side of the High Street opposite Union Road, up to the boundary of 11-13 High Street, as parked cars obstruct buses.

High Street, (near Brewery Lane)

Removal of double yellow lines.

Riverside Close

To introduce double yellow lines at the junction with Patrixbourne Road to keep the crossings clear of parked cars.

Union Road and Churchill Close

To introduce double yellow lines at the junction, as parked cars obstruct turning movements and large vehicles.

Union Road and Dering Road

To introduce double yellow lines in Dering Road and at the junction with Union Road, as parked cars obstruct turning traffic.
The consultation closes on Friday 21 February. Any objections will be reported to councillors at the Joint Transportation Board on 24 March.

Recreation Ground Gardening

Calling all keen gardeners, young and old, including the previous team.

Under Sue Hodges guidance small teams of Bridge villagers and children, have laid the foundations of an attractive Recreation ground.

We would like to continue this and welcome volunteers to come along on March 21st at 9:30, for coffee in the Pavilion, to discuss the way forward and make a start. Tools are available so just bring your gloves.

Recycling Cardboard

The refuse trucks are struggling to crush large pieces of cardboard and boxes effectively . This takes up a lot of space and reduces the amount of waste the truck can hold – resulting in the crew either making two trips to the recycling site, or putting it in landfill. So, the City Council is requesting the following:

  • Cut up your cardboard

    Please make sure that individual pieces of cardboard are no larger than 60 cm long on any side – about the length of your arm. These can then be bundled flat for collection.

    The refuse collectors will be putting stickers on large pieces of cardboard they canā€™t take, asking you to break it down for the next collection. For more details about this, visit

  • If your cardboard is business waste, visit commercial waste for details on how to dispose of it properly.
